Would you like to provide your students with a valuable and memorable, hands-on learning experience?
Your students can experience chicks hatching in your classroom while meeting science, language arts and math curriculum outcomes.
You will be provided with an incubator, 12 fertilized eggs and everything needed to hatch chicks in your classroom. The process of going from egg to chick takes 21 days, and then the chicks will be collected a few days after hatching.
Through this project, students will have an opportunity to learn about the incubation process, embryonic development, practice animal care and handling, develop a greater appreciation and understanding of agriculture and specifically the poultry industry.
